Several hashtags were trending on social media shaming Ramos, and blaming him for inflicting the injury on Salah. Egyptians, who are widely known for their sarcasm and creative meme creations, sent a flurry of those as well, while thousands of Arabs flooded Ramos’s comments section on Twitter supporting Salah.
Among the trending hashtags were ‘Ramos the dog’, ‘Mohamed Salah’, and ‘We are all Liverpool’.
